ENHA has just released the report of the 2nd Optimal Nutritional Care for All Conference 2016.

Launched in 2014, the Optimal Nutritional Care for All (ONCA) campaign is a multi-stakeholder initiative, which aims to ensure optimal nutritional care for all European citizens through nutritional screening and follow up on a national level.

Now in its third year the ONCA conference is organised and run by the European Nutrition for Health Alliance (ENHA) and was held in Madrid on the 21st-22nd November 2015.

The conference was hosted by the Spanish delegation and chaired by Professor Olle Ljungqvist (ENHA Chair, ESPEN representative) and Professor Anne de Looy (President of the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians, ENHA trustee). Over 130 delegates representing 15 countries attended the conference including speakers representing the Spanish Ministry of Health, the European Association for Homes and Services for the Ageing, and the European patient groups EPF and EGAN. An additional pre-meeting led by Cees Smit (EGAN) was held for the patient group representatives attending the ONCA conference.

The report presents the learnings from the conference. It first outlines the perspectives of ONCA member countries on their involvement with the ONCA initiative, along with the activities that they undertook in 2016. It then goes on to highlight each countries’ experience of the conference, what they had learned, and the next steps they intend to take based upon these learnings.

The report, and the executive summary of the report, can be downloaded below.
